Custom cursors?

In KOffice we have various apps that have over time implemented a 
rotate-cursor.  A rounded cursor with arrows on both sides.
We are in the process of consolidating that and I'm wondering if we should 
do that in KOffice libraries or in KDELibs.  I guess that adding a rotate 
and/or skew cursor to KCursor would be in everybodies interrest.

The idea KCursor seems to be to provide KDE-like configurability to 
cursors. The funny thing is that it only does that for one cursor 
nowadays :)  The rest comes from Qt.
And that one cursor is read from an XPM one.

I want to ask if we care about themable cursors and if anyone else things 
its a good idea to have the rotate and/or skew cursors in kdelibs.

On themable cursors; is there a kde-standard dir for it? If not; where 
should I install the png file?
